Hosted by Emily, Jennie, Sarah and Sarelle
Mondays from 8:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Next Show: August 4, 2014 @ 8:00 pm

Yeah, What She Said is Calgary’s only feminist/women’s radio program. Each week your hosts Emily, Jennie, Sarah and Sarelle explore various issues that affect women locally, nationally and globally.

As the voice of Calgary’s feminist community we inform you about upcoming events and interview local women who are doing amazing things. We also bring you women’s stories and news from around the globe, exploring a wide range of feminist topics from serious issues like prostitution to fun shows on pop culture.

Most importantly, we give a voice to women, introduce the public to feminist ideas, and hopefully leave you questioning, thinking and wanting to know more!
